After six years of playing music as Tyler Denning Band, an evolution of their sound caused the birth of Taller Trees in late 2016. Scattered influences and genres finally matured into what they now call Soul Rock. Blues and R&B roots with funk and pop elements combine to make music that's singable, danceable, and thought-provoking. The mission is for the music to have a groove and be catchy without musicians scoffing at its simplicity. The band regularly tours around Florida and the southeast, with Tallahassee being their headquarters. The most common description of a Taller Trees live show is "fun," but don't think you won't also find some lyrical depth in each song if you kick back and listen at home.
(TDB Bio for reference): One year after they formed, Tyler Denning Band won the Tally Award for Best Musical Group in Tallahassee. Since then they have played hundreds of shows, including the Pepsi BamaJam Fest in Alabama (2012) and Magnolia Fest at the Spirit of Suwannee Music Park (2014). Gaining a huge amount of experience playing in and around Florida has honed their live show into a confident, energetic, smooth-flowing performance.
The group’s discography consists of a full-length album, From The Ground Up (2013), and The Right Way EP (2014). The two projects document the evolution of the coastal soul sound, with blues-rock, reggae, and even folk songs flavoring the records. Denning makes good use of his Creative Writing degree with lyrical themes ranging from love and heartache to death and the fast pace of youth.
